  • ½ english cucumber with skin
  • 1-2 tbsp lemon juice approx. ¼-½ lemon +/- adjust to your liking
  • 3 garlic cloves finely minced
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil I used light
  • ½ tsp salt
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Grate the cucumber and sprinkle ½ tsp salt on it. Let it sit for 10-15 minutes, this helps remove excess water. 
  • Squeeze the grated cucumber to remove additional water.
  • Place the drained cucumber, yogurt, minced garlic, lemon juice and olive oil in a medium sized bowl. Add a pinch/dash of salt and pepper to your liking. Mix well.
  • Cover and refrigerate, until ready to eat.
